Having spent over 30 years in the IT Sector (Financial Services), I decided to jack it all in and walked away from that career in June 2017. At the tender age of 51, it was then for me to decide which direction I wanted to take.
Being a keen home-brewer for many years, and having built my own 25 litre micro-brewery in my garage, I learnt to create my own recipes and develop my own styles. Naturally, along the way, mistakes were made (sometimes resulting in beer that was just plain nasty!). But I never lost patience, and continued to plug away, learning the craft. So, it wasn’t a difficult decision in the end to take it to the next level.
It was in October 2017 that I discovered the unit where the brewery is being housed. A lot of work has been done to prepare the unit (some of which can be seen in the blog page) - and thus Spencer’s Brewery is born.
